The Way of Love

Here in the Episcopal Church, our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, has called us all to very basic practices that help us strengthen our love muscles, to receive Jesus's love for us, and then to live in such a way that others experience his love through us. These practices simply and appropriately are called the Way of Love. There's nothing new, earth-shattering about them. They simply express in our time the kind of intentionality that's necessary to grow in love. For as in love, like any other realm in life, we must practice love. 

We welcome you to learn about the Way of Love, beginning with the practice of Turn.
